Cha Cha yarn should be wound around a cone like ribbons are sold. It would make the process so much easier. We have worked out a way to wind the yarn but it takes time to do and the manufacturer could make the process much easier for the knitter. The yarn needs to be straight when knitting. It turns easily and makes the knitters job difficult. I do like the yarn a lot- but if my husband had not simplified the balling of the yarn I would not have been able to knit the scarves I have knit.
